Nah, they would just find someone else to hate.




"The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."
"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."
"I did," said Ford, "it is."
"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn't occur to them. They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates the government they want."
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards."
"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"
"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard, then the wrong lizard might get in."

The OP described 3/4 of the vehicles on the road in the Bellingham area. And 100% of those, have the coexist sticker and a half dozen feel-the-bern stickers!

I grew up in the Snow Belt around Cleveland and we didn't have no stinkin 4 wheel Drive in those days. Back then you learned to ANTICIPATE the hills and corners and how to apply the principle of Conservation of Energy to assist you in getting up the hills. BTW, that meant to gave the car a bit of gas going downhill to get your speed up and if there was a curve before the hill you did a bit of Power Drifting to carry your speed into the hill. BTW you also learned quite quickly that spinning your tires does NOTHING but turn snow into wet ice.

Having driven a Subaru back in the days BEFORE turbocharging I didn't really find them lacking in torque or power but I did drive a VW Beetle before driving a Roo. So I am not at all bothered by a Subaru. Note, while a bit under powered the Beetle was a VASTLY better car to drive in the snow. Because in the early days of small FWD cars there were universally damned poor in deep snow, would not go uphill and turn so if you had to turn you coasted and if you had to go uphill AND turn at the same time you turned around and found a different route.

What drive me bonkers is the Damned Prius Drivers, every single one of those obnoxious A-Holes seems to believe that it is their mission in life to slow the road speeds on the entire planet by blocking as many lanes as they can. If there are 4 lanes going in each direction you will see 4 Prius' going side by side 10-15 mph BELOW the speed limit.


I've stopped counting.

I had two BMWs before I got my Subaru so I had all my training complete. I found I wasn’t assholish enough with the Subaru so I went back to BMW. Razz

Out in Central Colorado they found a good suburu driver! So he'd been dead for a year before they found him. Guess that made him real deadified. And they located him off road so he didn't block anything!

Lol! I did it in the correct order then...I had a bug-eye '02 WRX and then 'upgraded' to a '94 BMW 325i. I can't really say that I was MORE of an asshole in the BMW...but I certainly wasn't less of one. The Subie was nice in Ohio where we had winter, but in southern Texas, RWD with a limited slip diff was WAAAAY more fun!

When I moved back to Ohio, the land of 10,000 traffic cops, I had to keep getting slower and slower cars to keep myself from getting tickets. At one point I was all the way down to a 103hp Scion xA, but found out I didn't have to go quite THAT slow! I'd own a Subie again, and if I did, you wouldn't need to worry about me going too slow in the left lane Cool

I mean do they think they’ve been granted Indulgences by the Pope himself that they are exempt from the, “Slower Traffic Keep Right” signs? Have they anointed themselves the Vicar of Carbon Emissions by forcing everyone to drive 5-10mph less than the speed limit? Or in words their liberal arts degreed minds will understand, do they think they get a get out of Hell free card by subjecting the rest of us to the Hell of having to follow them?

Just because their 4 cylinder shit box loaded down with kayaks and mountain bikes worth more than their car that is held together with duct tape, bungee cords and bumper stickers for social and environmental causes can’t maintain 65mph going up the hill from the Sterling Highway junction why should I be forced to conform with their vision of social and vehicular justice and equality?

I’m sorry but if they pedal through 3 passing lanes and don’t move to the right, I should be able to invoke the spirit of No. 3, the Intimidator, the late great Dale Earnhardt, get on their rear bumper, take a little air off the spoiler, get em’ lose and turn their station wagon loved by lesbians into the wall, or the guardrail, or the ditch…

You've named only the most prevalent of the two distinct Subaru sub-species abundant here in the Great Frozen North. While the granola sandals hippie Subaru sub-species is far more common, do not discount the danger of the lesser known Doucher-Bro Straight Brim Racer Subaru sub-species. They are every bit as annoying, and maybe even more dangerous. Big Grin

Yes, but at least you can point and laugh at the Doucher-Bro Straight Brim Racer Subaru sub-species as they're standing on the side of the road looking at their WRX or Impreza WRX Wanna-Be that's stuck in the ditch.

Back in the mid 80's my GF (now wife) bought a Subaru GL with the manual shift. That was one durable car, and got great mpg no matter how much my 19 year old self abused it. We only sold it later because she wanted an SUV.

Now, everyone else driving a subaru appears to be an a hole, but us? We were cool....

I love Subarus and had a legacy sedan when I lived in AK, also got my only 2 speeding tickets there.

There are many subspecies though. The alphabet crowd in a Forrester. The poor hippy/liberal arts student in an old Legacy or Impreza as described in the OP held together by bailing wire and leftist stickers. The millennial and/or yuppie douche in a new Outback and the ricers in a WRX STI.

I want to find an old one of any flavor beat to hell for $500, put big tires on it, spray paint it a flat earth tone and enter the Gambler 500.

Easy to find a Subaru here. Just look for the car that is stopped 40+ feet back from the car in from of it at any stoplight. And when the light changes they sit there for a 10+ second count and then they are the last car casually rolling through the yellow...red light.
They also slow down approaching GREEN light intersections (behavior usually associated with Prius drivers).
In the wild they also have been observed driving 50 MPH on any interstate highway's left lane heading uphill or downhill.
Perhaps someone can explain...
